There are three branches of physical sciences: Physics, chemistry and astronomy.
Physical science.

Physics - this is the study of the interactions between energy and matter. Physics also covers subjects such as time, light and gravity. Chemistry is the study of the properties, composition, structure and reactions of matter and elements. Astronomy is the study of the Universe. Science can also be divided into two other branches: Biological sciences and life sciences.
Biological science.

Geology is the study of the history, origin and the structure of the Earth. This also includes the physical, chemical and biological changes that the Earth has undergone, is currently experiencing or will undergo at some point in the future. Meteorology is the study of the atmosphere, including the Earth's climate and weather. Oceanography is the study of the ocean and the creatures that live there. Paleontology is the study of all forms of life that existed in geologic or prehistoric times.
Life science

Botany is the study of plants and their uses.

Genetics is the study of genes and the role that they play in our bodies.

Medicine is the study of diagnosing, treating and preventing diseases, illnesses and injuries.

Zoology is the study of animal life.

The subject of pure science can also be divided into four branches. These branches are: Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. Another branch of science that also exists but is not necessarily to be a "traditional" science is the social sciences. These subjects have only been introduced rather recently and are still not viewed by the scientific community as actual sciences. The branch of social sciences deals with the subjects that are not considered to be natural sciences like the ones listed above.

Social science.

Anthropology (the study of human behavior).


Cultural Studies.






Law (on occasion as this is usually considered to be a subject branch of its own).

Political science.

Psychology (regarded by many to be a "pseudo-science".)

Social Policy.

Geology, the study of the planetary structure of Earth and the physical processes which shape it.
Hydrology, the study of the movement and distribution of water across the Earth's surface.
Meteorology, the study of weather patterns and other atmospheric phenomena.
Physics, the quantitative science dealing with matter and energy
